Root Veggie Tacos

Who doesn’t love tacos?! They are so versatile and you can customize them to your liking. We are going with yummy root veggies in this recipe to make this a hearty dish. Some root veggies are beets, fennel, parsnips, carrots, and potatoes to name a few. We are working with carrots, parsnips, beets, red onion & sweet potatoes in this recipe. But feel free to swap what you want! Black beans are added in because well, TACOS!

The beauty of this recipe is that everything roasts together in 1 pan. I like to cook up extra to have on hand for other meal prep ideas during the week too. Options for toppings are endless, from cheese (vegan), sour cream, avocado, plain greek yogurt, salsa….  Wrap up in a corn or flour tortilla or it is a  bowl over greens or rice. So many options from 1 meal!
